post #19006 of 19009

So, I was driving to work early Saturday to teach kayaking on the Chesapeake Bay and I flipped my radio onto NPR and I heard a report about metal culture in the DC area. Mostly about MD Deathfest. Apparently NPR is not your father's NPR anymore.

Do you consider Keep of Kalessin to be death metal? I picked up their new release Epistemology the other day. Haven't actually listened to it yet (at least all the way through) so I can't really comment on it, but I got it on the strength of the streaming samples I've heard, and I was a big fan of their last album Reptilian.

 

Really looking forward to Arcturus' Arcturian myself, the preview stuff I've heard so far has been promising. Paradise Lost has a new album called Plague Within coming out soon too that sounds very death metal-ish.

It's maybe more like epic symphonic blackened death metal (and whatever other adjective you want to throw on there). Not particularly what I am after right now, but they don't sound bad. Thanks for the tip. I'll probably buy Undead and Gruesome to satisfy my hankering for new OSDM.

That Arcturus is really great. I had only heard some songs off their weaker albums, so I thought they sucked... Arcturian definitely changed my mind about them. I'll be getting The Sham Mirrors ASAP, as I heard it's better than Arcturian. Anyone care to comment on that claim? This may have been discussed already, but I was pretty busy the last month and didn't read the thread here.

Purchased 2005's Sideshow Symphonies as my first album by the band in 05. One one my best sounding metal CDs.

Only album I know of besides this new one? I actually like it better than the new album still.
